Dresser in Shades of Teal Blue

If you have followed me for awhile you know I LOVE any shade of teal blue so when a customer called a dresser from my stock to paint album and wanted it in shades of teal I was ecstatic. Now the problem arises in the fact that there are endless shades of teal and blues. She had a certain color in mind and after sharing all the colors I had on hand I directed her to a local Dixie Belle retailer.

She picked out Dixie Belle's antebellum blue and peacock.

A lovely combo for sure don't you think?

Step one was to scrub the entire piece well using Dixie Belle white lightening cleaner then rinse and dry before filling the dings and damaged areas and power sand smooth with an orbital sander.

Antebellum blue was brushed on using Dixie Belle's oval brush perfect for the staggered edges and flat surfaces.

and dry but the lighting is goofy to get the right color

Another Aged Wood Accelerator Growth Ruler

Another aged wood growth ruler was custom ordered so thought I would share again the process used to create it.

For this growth ruler I chose Varathane's aged wood accelerator. It was used in the previous growth ruler post. I also did one using the the weathered wood accelerator too.

Varathane's aged wood accelerator was brushed on both sides in two coats letting dry well between.

Then using Muddaritaville Studio growth ruler stencil, Rustoleum's Chalked ultra matte paint in linen white was stenciled on. both sides were sealed with Varathane's diamond wood finish clear top coat in semi gloss. Three coats were applied for the perfect finish.

It is now proudly displayed in a jungle theme nursery, thanks for your order Kaylin.

Here is a video of yet another one I did but adding a white wash over the whole ruler then more varathane to seal
